    This liner gives me a thin line that stays all day without running or clumping. Liked it so much I bought it in brown and black. Also bought one for my sister.

      Comments about Smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner:

      I use the violetta, which is the perfect color to complement my blue eyes. It's the best eyeliner I've used. The only catch is that you don't really know when it's going to run out, so buy two, so you have a backup.

          I love this product! I've always been a fan of gel eyeliners, but hadn't found the right fit for me. I picked this up one day just to try it out, and now it's a must have! I wear the penny color and it makes my eyes pop without being too bold. I also use the grey when i want the eyeliner to stick out more and make amazing smokey eyes for a night out! It glides on so smooth, doesn't take up much room in my make-up bag, and makes a perfect line! I do wish it lasted a little bit longer, but when you wear it every day things run out quicker! Overall, i think i've found my perfect eyeliner :)

            This is amazing eyeliner. Love the built in sharpener. Goes on easy over eyeshadow and I feel like I'm getting a clear, defined line when I apply it the first time and I'm not having to go over and over it.

                        Hi There! Smashbox is cruelty free. Saturate a cotton round with your favorite makeup remover and place on your lids for 10 seconds. After 10 seconds the liner should have loosened and you'll be able to wipe it away in long, even, gentle strokes

                        A:

                        Try these steps:

                        Put the cap on the liner.
                        Then, put your left hand on the cap and your right hand on the base.
                        Twist your right hand in the direction of the arrow and your left hand the opposite way.
                        You will feel that you have to twist past a point of tension; proceed, and you will hear a click.
                        Remove the cap.

                        That should sharpen it!
